We are committed to assessing possible risks from chemical agents including their use in specific products. We use a tiered approach for this, referred to as integrated testing strategy (ITS).
We offer our clients the studies and services required to assess the potential risks of chemicals to human health and the environment and to register these substances for the intended use. This includes industrial chemicals, biocides, food additives, and human and veterinary medicinal products. In close cooperation with our clients, we compile the data required for registration according to current legislation.
With self-initiated research projects, we contribute to the development of novel assessment strategies to help improve and refine existing risk assessment methods and ultimately to minimize the need for experimental studies, in particular animal studies. Examples of such projects are elucidation of structure-activity relationships ((Q)SAR), category approaches such as read across, the setting up of databases, and further development of the TTC concept.
